Nahin Hai Zakham Kha Kar Aah Karna Shaan-e-Darveshi
It is the mode of worldly men against the world to whine and groan;
It does not suit a dervish true, By Fate‐inflicted wounds to moan.

The wise old man explained to me, This subtle point in closet alone:
That control on self daring shows, Whereas plaints breed more guile and groan.
